RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A man initially accused of being an accessory in the killing of a woman on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation now has been charged with first-degree murder.

Twenty-nine-year-old Fred Quiver pleaded not guilty to the upgraded charge in federal court in Rapid City on Monday. Quiver also goes by the name Fred Brings Plenty,

Quiver is charged in the death of 24-year-old Emily Blue Bird, whose body was found Jan. 21 in a creek near Pine Ridge. Authorities believe she was strangled in early January. She had been missing for nearly three weeks when her body was discovered.

Twenty-three-year-old Elizabeth LeBeau also is charged with first-degree murder in the case. She pleaded not guilty earlier.
